Pieology Pizzeria Opens First Maryland Location
Popular Fast Casual Pizza Concept Officially Open in Gaithersburg
May 26, 2016 // Franchising.com // RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, California – Pieology Pizzeria, where pizza lovers go to create artisan-style custom pizzas in endless flavor combinations for one affordable price, is proud to announce that its very first Maryland location is now open in Gaithersburg. A proven favorite in the custom fast casual segment amongst pizza fans, Pieology Gaithersburg features the company’s newly introduced custom salad program and offers locals the opportunity to enjoy personalized pizzas and made-to-order custom salads, using an unlimited selection of over 40 toppings. This is the first location operated by franchise partner, MMM Pizza 1.
“We’re thrilled to open the very first Maryland Pieology location in Gaithersburg, and we’re excited to bring our signature crusts and sauces, to the community,” said MMM Pizza 1 CFO, Manny Bramao. “We chose Pieology because of the company’s dedication to ensuring a positive guest experience, along with their strategic, sustainable growth model. We wanted to work with a brand that has a proven track record for franchise success and we’re confident we’ve made the right choice.”
The Pieology experience starts with fresh house-made dough that is pressed into 11.5-inch thin pizza crusts, which is typically larger than others in the custom pizza space. Guests select from eight signature sauces, moving down the line to choose from more than 40 fresh and flavorful meats, cheeses, vegetables, herbs and spices. The customized pizzas are then stone oven fired to perfection in less than three minutes. To finish, guests have the option to add after-bake “Flavor Blast” sauces, including fiery buffalo, pesto and BBQ, to really make it their own! Pieology also offers gluten-free crust, whole wheat crust and a selection of seven signature pizzas, which can be customized upon request.
Pieology’s custom salads allow guests to create made-to-order salads by choosing from three fresh lettuce options of organic field greens, romaine hearts or spinach. Guests then select from any of Pieology’s large variety of toppings, including sunflower seeds, garbanzo beans and candied walnuts, along with a choice of five dressings made in-house. Pieology also offers a signature Classic and Caesar salad, which can be personalized with additional ingredients upon request. The generous portioned salad and pizza are the perfect pairing for a shareable meal.
Pieology Gaithersburg features an industrial-chic and friendly environment where inspirational quotes decorate the walls, menus and employee uniforms. The restaurant is open daily 11:00am to 10:00pm.
